About the Coolangatta Gold
The Coolangatta Gold is one of the premier sporting events on the Australian Surf Life Saving calendar and is a gruelling marathon that combines multiple surf lifesaving disciplines: ski, swim, board and run.
It’s cemented its place as one of the most challenging endurance sports in the world. Competitors set out from Coolangatta Beach in the long-course event and paddle a surf ski 23 kilometres to Miami Beach before making the return trip via running, swimming and board paddling.
Fun Fact: The Coolangatta Gold race concept actually began as a central theme for a motion picture more than 30 years ago.
